I lived and worked in the Boston suburbs for many years and go back to Boston at least once a year for a week or so to see family, classmates and friends.
I am always looking for a 3 or 4 more star hotel (never 2 star) that lets us park for free and which is offering a suburban kind of price, not the prices found in Boston proper. We seek a great room with great beds, a good full breakfast on site, near Rte 128 which is also called I 95, free parking and an easy drive to Boston.
I liked the Sheraton, Marriott, etc. but like to find bargains when I can. As of late, we have been using the Marriott when we can if the price is right. We love the Courtyard Boston Woburn North on Unicorn Drive because it is a snap to drive into Boston (Charlestown or Storrow or Memorial Drive), the rooms are very large, the lobby is so comfortable and we love the patio off the lobby, the layout of the hotel, and the simplicity and non-corporate atmosphere. The free parking is great.
